Dragon Ball Minus
Bardock, with his comrades, are fighting aliens on another world, when their scouters are alerted by a message from the Saiyan homeworld. There, he sees Frieza's spaceship hovering near the planet, and Bardock assumes Frieza has another plan in mind. He reunites with Gine, his mate, and questions her about their son. Gine reminds him that he is still in the incubator, but it's been three years, so he will be released soon. Bardock steals an Attack Ball, and he, along with Gine, send Goku (Kakarot) away to Earth, and informs Raditz, their oldest son, of his departure. A month later, Frieza charges a Supernova, and destroys the planet.

pine, gave him the ability to see the future. But, was quickly killed byTora. The Kannassan believed that in due time he would see the true Frieza. But when Dodoria and Zarbon reported that they took Kannassa in one night when it has been in the pool for weeks. This is when Frieza decided to destroy Planet Vegeta. Bardock saw this with his ability to see the future and tried to tell the other Saiyans but they didn't believe him, their ignorance leading to their deaths.
The Doctors said that his power level was reaching 10,000 (roughly King Vegeta's level), so they believed he could defeat Frieza. On the day Frieza tried to Genocide the Saiyans by destroying Planet
Vegeta,King Vegeta lead an expo into Frieza's space ship in hope of defeating Frieza. But was quickly executed with a punch to the jaw.
